Trigger Point Dry Needling

What is Trigger Point Dry Needling?
Although the name may sound intimidating, trigger point dry needling (TDN) is a safe and frequently effective technique for managing pain with minimal discomfort when performed by certified physical therapists. This technique uses short, fine stainless steel needles inserted into your skin. It’s called dry needling because the filiform needles, also called monofilament needles, don’t inject fluid into your body.
